We love illustrating books, especially when they’re colourful, meaningful children’s books that allow us to work in our favourite styles. We’ve worked with Dr Tamara Pizzoli and The English Schoolhouse publishing house for several years now, on so many collaborations that we’ve almost lost count. Alphabet Book Illustration has featured as a large part of our work together. We are big believers in Tamara’s mission to diversify children’s literature and provide representation for young people, and we love being able to contribute our illustration to her cause and bring life to her words.
F is for Fufu is the very first alphabet book that we illustrated for Dr Pizzoli, and is an accompaniment to the previous book, the modern West African tale The Ghanaian Goldilocks. The idea behind the book was that children could learn more about the culture, people, traditions and staples of the gorgeous country of Ghana, whilst learning their alphabet. The book allowed us to work our alphabet book illustration in a different style to our usual illustration, and was a great follow up for us after embracing Ghanaian culture for The Ghanaian Goldilocks.
We loved working on this book with Tamara, and we can’t wait to work on more together. If you’re looking for illustration for your children’s book, we would love to hear from you.
